A Sneak Peek At What The Insiders Are Saying

“We’re in a really hot time for copper — you can make some really nice money if you’re in the right place at the right time with the juniors. The intermediates you’re going to do very well, and the big guys are already doing very well."
— Byron King, writer of Whiskey & Gunpowder at St. Paul Research

"The biggest surprise (of 2021) was the price performance of nickel. We were not expecting a big price drop ... but I don't think anyone anticipated just quite how high the price was going to go."
— Marta Dec, CRU Group

“I wouldn't be surprised to see zinc top US$4,000 (per tonne in 2022). But at the same time, I don't think it holds above there; you'd have to have really strong fundamentals for that to happen, stronger than what's happening now.”
— Carlos Sanchez of CPM Group"
